I attended the Associated Collegiate Press Best of Midwest journalism conference in Minneapolis this past weekend along with four other members of The Weekly staff.
It was interesting. There were a lot of sessions on new media, relevant to what I do.
At the conference, publications were given the opportunity to submit their work in a convention contest. I am excited to note that The Weekly received a fifth place award for its website. See the complete contest results.
Thank you to everyone who has submitted story ideas, commented on the site, written articles, or otherwise helped in the process. We appreciate your contributions.
I should also note that Gustavus was recently recognized by collegesurfing.com as being a top social media institution.
